Lon Chaney. Victor Jory and John Bromfield star in this nautically set variation on the Poe stories The Tell-Tale Heart and The Gold Bug. Three fishermen go in search of a treasure and it leads to murder.

screenplay using poe stories well done
Victor Jory and the Poe ideas from Gold Bug and Telltale Heart are enough for you to watch this movie. The dumb act of Chaney grew tiresome quickly as did the rest of the cast. It would have been one star without Jory.

Fascinating Lon Chaney film with lots of Poe like twists and turns. These old movies show us subtle nuances that were not obvious to viewers originally. Quite worth your inspection and enjoyment.
